Queen Elizabeth: William, Harry, Others At Windsor To See Flowers Left By Grieving Well - Wishers



| The Daily Crucible | Saturday, September 10, 2022

The quartet of Prince William and his wife, Princess Catherine,  Prince Harry and his wife, Megan Markle in unity visited the Buckingham Palace over the the death of their grandma, Queen Elizabeth 11.

The Prince and Princess of Wales as well as the Prince and Princess of Sussex took to Windsor section of the palace  to inspect the sea of floral tributes laid outside the gates of the Berkshire estate in tribute to the late Queen.

The royals, once dubbed the 'fab four', were greeted by applause as they walked along the gates of Windsor Castle together. 

However, all did not appear to be completely well among the feuding couples, who at times appeared uneasy in each other's company.

Meanwhile, the Buckingham Palace has announced September 19 as the date for the funeral service of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen died on Thursday at the Balmoral Castle at the age of 96 in the presence of her children and grand-children.

According to the Palace, the funeral would hold by 11.00am that day.


About 24 hours earlier, thousands around the UK, and the world, had gathered to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth. 

The 96-year-old monarch died at Balmoral, her beloved Scottish estate, where she was joined by her family. Yet, despite the sober mood that naturally ruled the day, for the some fans, nature offered a poignant reminder of joy.

At Windsor Castle, a rainbow arched over the grounds just as the Union Jack flag began to be lowered in honor of the monarch's death.

As the flag is lowered to half mast over Windsor Castle an incredible rainbow appears over the castle, for a few minutes and then just like that it was gone…. 

"As the flag is lowered to half mast over Windsor Castle an incredible rainbow appears over the castle, for a few minutes and then just like that it was gone…." royal photographer Chris Jackson shared on Twitter, marking the occasion.

Also, in London, an impressive double rainbow was captured by mourners gathered at Buckingham Palace, as reporter Andy Lines shared in a video, after a statement announcing the Queen's death had been placed at the gates.

The colorful arches served as a bright spot on the otherwise sad day, and, to some, a cheerful nod to the late Queen herself, who was well-known over the course of her 70 year reign for her affection for bold, colorful ensembles.

The Queen is succeeded by her eldest son, formerly known as Prince Charles, now King Charles I11

"The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of great sadness for me and all members of my family," the new king said in a statement. "We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt through the country, the Realms, and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world. During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held."
